ANTS! (it happened at lakewood manor; killer ants) (1977 U.S.) D: ROBERT SCHEERER W: GUERDON TRUEBLOOD P: PETER NELSON
Construction work at a holiday resort (run by wheelchair-bound Myrna Loy) disturbs a colony of ants with highly poisonous bites. Typical tv movie-of-the-week, with plenty of dull character stuff to slog through before the ants attack. They don`t seeem much of a threat to be honest, and only die hard insect horror fans will want to sit through it. The ending is somewhat memorable though, with the leads trying hard not to move, covered in ants and breathing through paper tubes. With Robert Foxworth (who gets ants in his beard), Bernie Casey, Stacky Keach Sr., Lynda Day George and Jim Storm. Trueblood also wrote THE SAVAGE BEES and TARANTULAS: THE DEADLY CARGO, and directed THE CANDY SNATCHERS.
